What is a Cub Scout?
Cub Scouts are boys & girls that are looking for adventure. We get to camp, hike, fish, climb rock walls, race in pinewood derbies, shoot BB guns and bows, & fire slingshots.
But Cub Scouts do so much more! We help with community service projects, tour museums, participate in national & state park outings, and explore aquariums, science centers, and zoos.
Better yet, this isn’t just a place for your children, it’s a place for adults as well! Adults will go on all of the exciting adventures and do the hands-on projects right along side their Scouts. Just like your Cub Scout, you will be connecting with friends & experiencing new things.
What if my child isn’t into camping or outdoor activities? No problem, Scouting isn’t all about the outdoors!
When Scouting started over 112 years ago it was very much about the outdoors, but now being a Scout is so much more! We will be learning about citizenship, working as a team, building relationships, science (STEM), first aid, etc. Cub Scouts is a place where your child will grow & learn outside of a school setting. We don’t give grades, we always “Do our Best”, scouting is a safe place to fail. A lot of times children grow up worried about being perfect in school with grades, sports, making clubs or teams! This is not the case with Scouts! They will learn that failure is ok as long as they walk away with a vision for improvement.
If you are saying to yourself, that all sounds great but I don’t have the time! You are correct you have limited time! Your child is already 5 – 10 years old right now. A portion of their childhood has already passed! Make sure you are spending what precious time that’s left in a positive way with them today! Cub Scouts can be just the one-on-one time you’ve been looking for.
